Ingredients: How to Make Asian Flavoured Vegetable Stock


Fragrant and delicate, Asian Stocks for the basis of many S. E. Asian dishes, especially those with noodles. Often I make this stock, add some sliced mushrooms and Asian Greens and call it (a very light) dinner. This is perfect for the days when you need to nurture yourself and your body.

Similar recipes include a Light, Infused Indian-Style Stock, and a Coconut Curry Stock.

Asian Flavoured Stock

To the basic light vegetable stock or water, add a selection of the following:  ginger or galangal slices, dried tangerine or mandarin peel if you have it, coriander roots and stalks, garlic, ginger, spring (green) onion tops, lemon grass, Kaffir lime leaves, cardamom leaves if you have some, curry leaves, a little green chilli, dried mushrooms, half a lime, star anise. Even a luscious tomato.

This broth is good enough to float some Asian greens in, a few green onions, and some thinly sliced mushrooms with a touch of miso stirred in. A great Asian flavoured soup.
